Easy DIY Literary Halloween Costumes For Bookworms

month (1)

Hi Readers!

Even though there won’t be big Halloween parties or get togethers this year, that doesn’t mean we can’t still dress up (and stuff ourselves with candy).

These are some simple costume ideas based on some of our favourite book characters. I really enjoyed trying to find the perfect items for this and I’ve linked to all of them, but these are just easy outfits you can pull together with whatever you have in your wardrobe.

I would also say these aren’t necessarily spooky costumes, but I feel like cosplaying for Halloween has become really popular these past few years. Besides, I feel like 2020 has been scary enough for all of us!
